  • All submissions should be accompanied  corresponding and contacting author contact information including full name, e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address (corresponding author and contacting author).

  • Papers must be clearly written in English. Font: Times New Roman 14, number of pages: 12 – 14.

       Research articles present original research and address a clearly stated specific hypothesis or             question. Papers should provide novel approaches and new insights into the problem addressed.

 

  • A research article should divide into the following headings:

Title page

Author's information

Abstract

Keywords

Introduction

Materials and Methods

Results

Discussion

Conclusion

References

Tables/Figures

Review articles are an attempt by one or more authors to sum up the current state of the research on a particular topic. Ideally, the author searches for everything relevant to the topic, and then sorts it all out into a coherent view of the as it now stands.

Tables  

Tables must be numbered with Arabic numerals in the order in which they are cited in the text. They should have a brief descriptive title placed at the top. A short description is also accepted. Footnotes can be included below the table. Tables cannot duplicate data contained in the text. Tables must be sent in Microsoft Word and have no links to the main document or other archives. Provide files at approximately the correct size they are to be printed (letter size).

Figures

Figures should be supplied in an electronic format at a suitable size for printing with the following resolutions: 600 dots per inch (dpi) for line drawings and combinations; 300 dpi for greyscale and colour. Colour figures must be supplied in CMYK not RGB colours. Please ensure that the prepared electronic image files print at a legible size and are of a high quality for publication.

 

References

At the end of the paper, in the References section the literature should be arranged in alphabetical order. If they have the same author, they should be in chronological order.

Proofs

All manuscripts will undergo some editorial modification, so it is important to check proofs carefully. PDF page proofs will be sent via e-mail to the corresponding author for checking. To avoid delays in publication, proofs should be checked and returned within 48 hours. Corrections should be returned by annotated PDF, e-mail or fax. Extensive changes to the text may be charged to the author.

On the issue of the final decision on the publication of the article, you must wait for the editor's answer.
